|Tackling Human Trafficking|
|Thursday 5th July 2018: 10am to 3.30pm|
|On Thursday 5th July in the Church, you have the opportunity to hear a speaker talk about trafficking, having worked in this context for around 12 years.|
Sister Imelda Poole is coming from Albania, where she is the President of the Mary Ward Loreto Foundation, to tell us about the work she does with young people to educate them in the hazards of human trafficking. Albania, like the UK, has some of the highest reported cases of this crime in Europe. How does the work she does aim to eradicate people trafficking?
Mary Ward Loreto is planting hope with a human rights approach to combating modern day slavery. This challenging mission is implemented through works of justice, education, grass roots action and systemic change. The aim is to eradicate poverty, the prime cause for human trafficking.
Drinks will be served from 10 am with the day starting at 10.30 am and finishing at 3 pm. Please bring your own lunch. Drinks will be provided. Cost for the day is £3.
This is being arranged by Methodist Women in Britain, in partnership with Albania Hope, although we hope that more people – both men and women, and not necessarily Methodist – will come and find out more. If you are able to come just for part of the day, I'm sure you will find it enlightening and educational.
If you want to find out more, please speak to Helen Cornick.
